Overdirection Conection

Big hair with plenty of Volume is the envy of most of us out there. Getting plenty of volume or body and bounce into the hair is the trick when trying to create BIG HAIR!
“If you think I have BIG HAIR ask me about my dreams.”

tools you will need for Blow Drying:
• Hairdryer with nozzle to direct the airflow
• A “root lift” product, these generally come in a spray form
• A large round bristle brush (although the size of brush will depend on the length of your hair).
• A selection of clips to keep unwanted hair out of the way
• Plenty of hairspray to finish with.
How to:
The trick is what hairstylists call “over direction” sounds a little confusing, but all this means is that as you blow dry each section you are brushing the hair with your brush in the opposite direction than the hair falls in order to achieve the maximum volume when the hair is brushed back the way you normally would style it.

• Shampoo and Condition your hair with a volume rich shampoo and conditioner a good blow dry always begins with good cleansing products.
• After towel drying really well, use your chosen root lift product by lifting each section as you spray the product concentrating at the root area. You may also choose to cocktail a gel or a mousse with your root lift product for added volume.
• Begin in the nape section and direct the hair with your brush and blow dryer up and away from where the hair naturally falls. Continue brushing all the hair in over directing motions to gain the maximum volume. Get the hair about 80% dry and then you can begin to use your round brush.
• Take about a 1” section in the nape and clip the rest of the hair away.
• Begin drawing your brush over the surface of the section from roots to ends, directing the hair up against the direction you want it to fall in. Continue doing this all over until the hair is completely dry.
• Good products to use for Root Lifting (UNITE Expanda Volume, UNITE Expanda Dust, BAMBOO 48 hour volume spray, BAMBOO Texturizing Body Boost, MOROCCAN OIL Root Boost)

are you wearing the right haircut for your face shape?

who knew face shape had anything to do with their haircut or style?!?

People often look at a picture of a celebrity in a magazine and tell me, “I want to look like her!” Well, wouldn’t we all? I think it is important to not only study the style and what a client really wants, but also to take note of a persons face shape and structure. Choosing the right style for your face can help to enhance or take away from strong facial features.

 

Round face shape
– asymmetrical
– imprecision
– piecy layers
– pixie, helps define the cheek bones
– angled bob with long layers, hard lines help soften the round shape
– add body at the roots but avoid too much on the sides (widens the face)

Oval face shape
– straight bangs above the brow line can create the illusion of width
– on shoulder length or longer, a center part with soft waves
– bob with side bangs
– avoid long styles, add waves to widen the face
– try not to wear it longer than shoulder length

Square face shape
– chin length soft tapered bob
– style hair with waves from the ears down
– wearing your hair straight and long takes the attention off of a strong jaw line

Heart face shape
– hair that hits right below the jaw line helps fill in the area around the chin
– also add body to disperse lines around the chin
– wear a deep side part and side swept bangs. (idea is to bring your eyes outward)
– a soft pixie cut with side swept bangs

Diamond Face Shape
– wear hair away from your face (pony or an updo)
– avoid heavy or straight bangs, try a side bang
– lots of layers help keep the diamond face shape open

So, like I said before: choosing the right style for your face can help to enhance or take away from strong facial features. Ask your stylist next time you’re in what they think your face shape is. Or ask them if you’re wearing the right style to best feature your face shape. Don’t forget, that’s what we’re here for…. To make you look your best!
